The Flonzaley Resident Ensemble affords a talented group of musicians a week-long residency at The Sembrich with the opportunity to use the studio freely to rehearse and perform. The residency was established in tribute to the Flonzaley Quartet, founded by arts patron and Sembrich colleague Edward de Coppet in 1903.  Mr. de Coppet opened his Swiss estate to the artists each summer and established the quartet on the principal that its members would never accept outside engagements or take on students.  The musicians devoted themselves solely to the purpose of perfecting their art. It was with that lofty goal in mind that in 2010 The Sembrich created this residency, and this year is pleased to welcome the Villalobos Brothers as the 2017 resident ensemble.
